M&C Italian cold cuts
M&C, the forefront of Italian cold cuts
M&C Italian cold cuts is a leader in the portioned and packaged sliced cheeses and meats business. The current organization, aside from its cutting edge machines and production methods, boasts a proud history of Italian entrepreneurship. And it all takes place in one of the most beautiful cities in Italy.
After the war, a young Umberto Castaldo starts work as a shop-boy in a delicatessen in the city centre. He is quick to learn the trade and before long he begins running his first shop, only 40sq m, in via Cavalleggeri d'Aosta (still there), called "La fonte dei formaggi".
With the inclusion of brothers Eugenio, Ciro and Mario, the number of shops grew to 4 in a little less than a decade, all in the Fuorigrotta quarter of Naples. In the late eighties "don Umberto", as he was known, understood the needs of the modern working woman, now no longer just a housewife. He began to offer the convenience of sliced cheeses. A brilliant idea that, thanks to the expertise of M&C, continues to be successful even today. M&C are giants in their sector, while remaining true to the spirit of the best local stores.
